TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Cholla quarterback Jordan Porter scored three first half touchdowns and the Chargers never looked back on their way to a 50-0 home opening win over Amphi.

The Chargers’ senior quarterback, who scored eight touchdowns in Week 0, ran for scores of a seven, three and 44 yards to stake Cholla (2-0) to the early advantage.

Porter didn’t get eight touchdowns against Amphi but he did get six.

He finished the night 9-of-15 for 208 yards with the two touchdown passes. Porter ran for 179 more yards on ten carries with four scores.

The game ended a streak of three straight games in which the Chargers quarterback had thrown for 400 or more yards.

Devin Stubblefield had five catches for 99 yards and a touchdown while AJ Blair had the other scoring reception to go along with 80 yards on three catches.

It was a night when their defense absolutely dominated led by senior linebacker Christian Villascusa.

Amphi sophomore free safety Kevin Silva had a pair of interceptions for the Panthers (0-1) who lost a ton of seniors of their division championship playoff team from a year ago.

Cholla has won two games to start the season coming off a 2016 campaign in which they finished 1-9.

The assignment gets tougher for Ryan Scherling’s crew in Week 2 as they travel to face Catalina Foothills.

Amphi returns home next week for the Battle of Prince Road with Flowing Wells.
